Ranch Salsa Burrito Stack'ems

Ashley Dawkins


I made these for my boyfriend even though he is not the biggest fan of Mexican flared foods. I keep the heat pretty light for him because I'm an extreme spice kind of gal...and he's very mild.

It seems like a lot of steps, but I really broke it down so give it a go before you look the other way!!

If you cook the shells before hand, you'll have to give them a little more crunch by heating them back up in the oven before serving.

How to Make Ranch Salsa Burrito Stack'ems


  1. Preheat your oven to 300* and cut your tortillas into circles by using a cookie cutter or a large glass. I used the rim of a coffee mug. Make sure that your circles are bigger than the circles of your cupcake tin. Press the tortilla into the mold and place in the oven for 25 minutes.
    I was able to get 5 circles out of one large tortilla.
  2. With the remaining bits of tortilla, I sliced up and sprinkled with a dash of olive oil and a couple sprinkles of the left over taco seasoning and garlic salt. I then put them on some tin foil and put them in the oven with the shells.
  3. Put the beef slices into a deep fry pan and cook about half way through. While this is cooking start making your Spanish rice per directions on package.
  4. When the beef is half cooked turn to low and WITHOUT draining add the peppers, onions and half the package of taco seasoning. Let this cook slowly while your rice is cooking. Also add the 1/3 cup of water.
  5. Mix up the ranch salsa, it is 1 tablespoon of ranch to 2 tablespoons of salsa.
  6. Stuff a shell with rice and then a dollop of the ranch salsa. Take another shell and put the beef and veggie mix in it with some lettuce, another helping of ranch salsa and you can top with the tortilla strips you also baked.
    Stack the beef stuffed shell on top of the rice shell, it should stick nicely.
  7. Serve with an ice cold Margarita and enjoy!!
  8. *These are fun because you can bite into them together or you can take them off in layers!!*
